Any chance of cruises restarting in March for NCL has ended as of today.

Norwegian Cruise Line announced on Tuesday it has decided to push back the restart of the only cruise ships that were still scheduled to sail in March 2021.

Norwegian Encore, Norwegian Escape, and Norwegian Joy sailings have been suspended through and including March 31, 2021. 

All other NCL sailings in March were previously suspended.

NCL's website was updated to reflect the news, "We have extended our voluntary temporary suspension of ALL voyages through March 2021. Previously, we had announced the suspension of cruises on all ships except Norwegian Encore, Norwegian Escape, and Norwegian Joy. Today, we have added those three ships to the list of cruises suspended through March 2021."
